Street Style with a twist

It’s been a hot minute since I did a turban style with success. I usually have to struggle to get it right. But, since I have been practicing, I’m getting the hang of it and it’s actually turning out cooler than I expected. I am super happy that it stays in place and I don’t have to keep pulling at it to make it work. Today’s outfit consisted of that…a turban hijab!!!

I have had this “keffiyeh” for a few years now. My papa gave it to me when I was younger. As Palestinians, we have pride wearing it as it represents revolution, nationalism and peace.

Nowadays, it’s more of a fashionable statement. You find this scarf anywhere and everywhere.  Anyhow, I came across my scarf as I was doing a major closet cleaning and was super inspired to wear it as a turban scarf and style it in a cool, street-chic kinda way. This is how it turned out!

I wore my favorite jeans ever! Combined them with a burgundy Zara top and acid washed Gap denim jacket. I added my favorite H&M earrings of all time! Of alllll time!! I am so not an earring kinda gal, but for these!!!  I am a convert.

This has got to be my favorite street style look so far and I would for sure wear it again!

I feel like it’s the perfect combination of feminine and masculine. This is how I love my outfits to be. Fashion and style shouldn’t have limits and I am so blessed to be able to explore all the possibilities!
